, early voting is making this year's ground game more important. obama has the edge there too. his campaign opened more than twice as many field offices as mitt romney. and that has given him a two-to-one lead for example among early voters in ohio. if you look at iowa, it's 35 points. let me be clear. this is not hypothetical polling. those polls that i just mentioned are of people who already voted. and obama isn't just beating romney. this week i spoke to campaign aide, adam fletcher who says the obama campaign is also beating its early vote margins from 2008. what is the gop response? it's twofold. first, they say they have an advantage with absentee and election-day voters. that's true. but there is another response that i think is more troubling. in ohio, they tried to stop the early voting on the weekend before november 6th. that's against the rules. and when that failed, ohio republicans went all the way to the supreme court, which rejected their attempt. so like voter id laws, early vote cog become another ugly battle over the right to vote itself. and that's one rule of p
voters in ohio was president obama. he had to produce a photoid to vote. help me to understand recognizable person in the entire united states of america has to show his photoid why is it too much to ask that for the rest of that. most of them gave up the licenses and passport. if chicago requires voters id. those who say we ain't got voters fraud going on around here, they must have missed the powerful and disturbing reports filed by eric shawn who exposed voters fraud in multiple states. eric reportod hudson hallum a sitting democrat who pled guilty vodka voting scheme ited his father and city council and even a police officer. the u.s. attorney appointed by barak obama and eric holder got the guilty pleas and the resignation. it is just people don't usually get caught. in virginia this we're. patrick moran was forced to resign from his father's campaign after an undercover video showing young moran aiding and abetting fraud and get ballots and using forged documentings. i joked that you ought fovote early and often. but i never meant for people to take that literally. a frau
of them can't finted - find jobs these days. obama got 60 percent of the vote there. that was a growing african-american community there as well. and so obama has target to get out and vote. african-american voters and singleles and crowd. and they would like to get the same turn out. romney has to go in the old neighborhood in the outer suburbs was columbus and by the way, that is where a number of romny and ryan campaigns. >> we are not ready for the yet. but who do you see winning the election? >> i see romney winning the election. i see him generally ahead in the polls and i see him, i see president obama at fren percent. that is not because people don't know him. you have 53 percent last time. 100 percent of the people know him and observed him closely for four years and you can't help but observe the president closely and only 47 percent are voting for him f. the election were held would he have the 270 vote majority nailed i think so but not sure. we have seen the situation where winninglet popular vote didn't win the electorial vote. but he's clearly within reach of 270 electora
to make a difference for president obama. it won't if romney has more votes and wins. it's important to remind the supporters what's at stake and to get them to bank those votes in advance. >> jeff, we are expecting sandy to throw quite the wrench into some campaigning. governor romney shifting his stops tomorrow from virginia to ohio. power outages after the storm could really shift priorities for a lot of swing state voters. how big could the political impact of sandy be? s. >> well, the first thing to think about, since you know i like to do the counterfactual history. what if sandy hit on tuesday november 6th? that would be something that has never happened before, as far as i can tell in american politics. the broader point, if i may, is that the obama campaign, its one advantage even in the midst of the last couple of weeks since the first debate of declining leads is that it's had four years, five, if you count the 2008 campaign, to build a turnout machine. the sophistication of how you locate your voters and how you persuade them to vote has changed by a factor of a million,
was winning the early vote by about six points that enormous shock. obama has claimed all along they would win the early vote. so obama will be in big trouble despite being a day or two presidential giving out a lot of money and going around being concerned. >> sean: i just hope people compare and contrast, this is not the same president in benghazi. we don't 6 a picture of the situation when the president was flying off to vegas. i'm not saying this is photo op or the president doesn't care. i'm sure he does. you are are right. photo-ops giving away money does not erase four years of a bad economy. it does not erase of the lies told in relationship to what happened in benghazi. >> the fact is the waters recede benghazi is still going to be here. >> sean: thanks for being with us. remember cindy sheehan, she was the face of iraq anti-war movement. why does it come to justice, ty woods and his fallen son they get silence. and go to our website for brand-new online extension to the show. you can access online live. straight ahead. irping ] are you sure you can fit in there?

vote is key. president obama carried this state in 2008. unemployment rate far below the national average, but mitt romney has a strong presence here. not only was he governor of neighboring massachusetts, but he owns a house here in new hampshire. kristen welker, thank you for that report. >>> from new hampshire to the sunshine state. many residents down here in florida not waiting until election day to cast their ballots. just this morning, hundreds, thousands lining up at polling places to lock in their support for their candidate of choice. will this early electoral activity impact what we see on november 6th? joining me to talk about it, a.b. stoddard associate editor on the hill and jeff greenberg. a.b., let me start with you. both candidates want to bank votes, but this has been a major push for the president, in particular. he made it his public service announcement on the trail. can democrats make enough strides with in-person early voting to prevent sweating out election night? >> well, that's what they hope. if you talk to them in these last two weeks, the goal has been
that mormajorid probably vote for barack obama. >> u.s. did a poll in august, and a prediction of 90 million will not vote next tuesday. when they ask people who didn't vote, if you had to vote who would you vote for? and i think the number was 43% would vote for obama, and 18% would vote for romney. the nonvoters are easily 2-1 or 3-1 in favor of obama. so the real challenge i think, is this is what i thought. i sent this out to twitter followers and facebook and between my mailing list, i have 5 million people on various social media. i said to all of them today, can you do me the favor? in the next fiver six days, identify somebody who isn't planning on voting and expect them to vote? get them to vote. if we took that as the mission for the next six days. i'll get one nonvoter to vote, and i think that this could add easily another million votes for obama. we don't talk about the unlikely voters, and i would look at this if i were a politician and say, wow, there's 90 million untapped votes there, what can i do. >> let's take a final break. stick around. we'll be back after this. [ male a
>> do you see much ticket splitting? a vote for obama or romney and then vote for republican or democrat for the senate? >> i think we are a more polarized nation. >> ticket splitting would be good because there is an interesting theory that it would be helpful to romney if the democrats kept control of the senate by a vote or two because it would allow romney to tell the crazies in his own party that i have to make a deal with the democrats. >> well -- >> back at bain? >> i'm saying, if elected, it might not be a tragedy. >> the republicans are not only going to keep the house, and they all will keep most of their majority. this is one place where redistricting and a late money from super pacs has made a difference. >> crystal ball, colby. >> i see barack obama -- i talked to a former republican chairman, could judiciously looks at the numbers, and i looked at his numbers, i see barack obama winning electoral college by 286 votes. >> could it be possible for him to win the electoral college and lose the popular vote? >> i understand it is mathematically possible. >> how likely is it? >>
voting numbers suggestion that president obama may be in trouble in florida. at this point, in 2008, democrats held a more than 134,000 vote lead in florida. as of yesterday, democrats led by fewer than 21,000. and 70 percent drop off. obama campaign does not dispute the numbers. well, i'm joined by artur davis, national co-chair of president obama's 2008 presidential campaign, a former democratic congressman from the great state of alabama. he has since charged his party affiliation. and also with us former rnc spokesperson. jerry jacoby. >> thank you, lou. lou: let's start, how much troutrouble is this. >> democrats put a lot of stock in early voting, in getting their base out to vote early, they ran up a huge margin over john mccain 4 years ago, because of early voting, one of the reason that democrats are so panicked renew, one reason they are trying to spend every possible tea leaf and discredit every national poll they could looking at hard -- they are looking at hard numbers from data poll numbers could one state they are not behind early vote numbers is colorado. problem is
%. early voting has been under way in ohio for 25 days. today, president obama campaigned on local ohio television via satellite from washington. >> i'm very confident and the reason is first of all we've got incredible volunteers and folks who are out there making phone calls and knocking on doors and as you know early voting has started in ohio and we've seen a huge up surge in people taking advantage of that. so we've got a pretty good sense of who's actually voting in ohio. >> joining me now are joy reid and ohio state senator nina turner. senator turner you've had get out the vote rallies repeatedly. what have you been doing today and in the last 11 days to get out the vote? >> we're firing up the president's base and making sure that people understand that this is a choice election and in that no one can sit this out and we have to make sure that in the state of ohio that we continue to rally the base, get folks excited and they are very excited, lawrence. contrarry to what motion may be seeing. there is no enthusiasm gap in the state of ohio. they fully understand what is at stak
or more in a major rally in ohio, mr. romney is using president obama's own rhetoric about voting against him. the president suggested that his supporters should vote for revenge mitt romney in colcalifornia spring and dubuque threw that back at the president. >> today president obama it was yesterday, you probably heard about he asked supporters to vote for revenge. i ask the american people to vote for love of country. >> mr. romny -- mr. romney said that over and over and over again in an attempt to cast mr. obama and his presidency as one of division and suggest he will unite the country and reach across the aisle in a bipartisan way. the romney complaint is that president obama made promiseless of hope and change and couldn't deliver. he couldn't because of grid lock that he caused. he simply doesn't have an administration to get things done. >> analyst said it is it like a courtroom where attorneys make the closing arguments. it is getting last, but we are hearing new lineups. >> that's right. and when you have the campaigns packing their calendars as busy as they have in 73 hours a
on them. and if you don't vote for obama, you are in bad shape. it's like a push poll. they don't want your opinion, they want to tell you and shape what your opinion should be. then they do a poll and say women only care about abortion. if you cared about yourself and your daughter you would vote for obama. >> bill: never use the word abortion. it's always reproductive right. >> health. >> bill: it's yowrs health. the way they position is that the republic party doesn't pim pa theisman with the ladies and mr. obama does. i have to say, that i disagree with you. i think it's working because if you look at the economy, that's a romney strength. that's a romney strength. >> romney is doing better with women in the last three weeks than he ever did before. >> he is still behind in single women. >> he is. according to this swing state poll, the number one issue amongst 12 of these states is 39% of the women said abortion. i'm not saying that it's not going to be effective. i'm saying that women do not only vote based on abortion. >> part of the problem is that you have got murdock out ther
what president obama said in springfield ohio. >> don't boo, vote. vote. voting is the best revenge. >> that was a riff on what president obama says every time the crowd boos when they hear the name mitt romney. the president says don't boo, vote. this time he tossed in, okay, a line with the word revenge in it. of course, revenge was probably not the best word choice, but it was truly just a throwaway line. the romney campaign, what do they do? they wasted no time capitalizing on the word revenge. in an 11th hour attempt to change the subject, the republican candidates have both gone to pennsylvania in the past 24 hours because they see that ohio is sthripg away. we want to know what you think tonight. will romney's last minute attacks on president obama work? text a for yes, text b for no to 622639. you can always leave a comment at our blog at ed.msnbc.com. >> one of the big hurd els that president obama has right now is to get white working male os his side. how do you see that playing out from what you've been able to see on the ground in ohio. >> that's exactly why he went to
, but i am going to go for barack obama. anyone that will vote for mitt romney has to be a 100% raist, or have a severe -- a 100% racist or have a severe mental problem. host: are you glad you are not subject to all of the presidential ads and mailings coming and to folks in ohio? caller: i am so glad. and i watched c-span, and the comments that i hear from the people, it is so sad. why do they hate this black president? and one thing i want to make clear. i am not voting for obama because we are black. host: we lost you there. i want to point to the columbus dispatch. the headline is -- mailings a nuisance for ohioans. those of any swing states are saying it every day, calling the number of mailings and the ads a nuisance at this point. let us go to mississippi, cecila on our line for democrats. good morning. caller: yes. our state will go more than likely to romney. where the poorest people and the nation, and this man is only for the very rich. i call him a very strong used car salesmen. he will tell you anything you want to hear. and he is going to tear this country up, just like
. president obama flew back to chicago on thursday to take advantage of early voting in illinois becoming the first sitting president in history to cast a ballot early. mitt romney's campaign, meanwhile, has been buffeted by a series of things that happened to put him on defensive. richard mourdock, who romney has endorsed, became the latest gop candidate to make con throw versal comments about rape. john sununu suggested that former secretary of state colin powell had crossed party lines to endorse president obama because of the president's race. i think what we're seeing in the race is essentially the race regressing to the mean. it's basically the race going to what its stable equilibrium is. if you go back and you look at the nate silver model, the role that nate silver's model plays in the psychology of liberals is a topic we could do a whole show on. people are wearing out their mouse button by clicking refresh. basically the race is where it was in june. i mean, so everything that was, you know, before everyone started campaigning, right, mitt romney gets the nomination, you basica
that popular vote and obama makes us win the electoral college. >> we're going to be critical. >> i would be happy to have that discussion. >> we at the nation magazine have been calling for the abolition of the electoral college. if that's what happens, we should rethink that. >> convenience. >> i do think there's a remote chance that that's the scenario, left/right coalition. they'll have the tea party really freaked out. they already questioned the legitimacy of the 2008 election which is indisputable. they have a point there. they have a kernel of truth about the populus will being denied and it happened in 2000, it could happen in 2012. >> on tomorrow's show we're going to have your colleague, rick hurtsberg, we're going to talk about the electoral college, why it's there. >> how we can't get rid of it. >> we're stuck. >> there's an incredibly clever way around that that akila martin has come up with. >> you're talking like a republican. >> no, not with an amendment. state law. here's another thing that happened this week. we all know about the mourdock quote about rape. i'll play th
was inspired to vote after president obama won four years ago and says she promised herself if she lived to see another election, she would vote. she requested a ballot by mail yesterday. a family friend helped her fill it out and turn it in. >>> thank you very much. in 2008, young voters were a driving force in barack obama's victory. today, 40% of the u.s. population is now 30 years old and under. for each presidential candidate, it's the largest demographic up for grabs. the bigger question, will these voters show up at the polls next tuesday? joining us this morning, vice president of young democrats of america, and chairman of d.c. young republicans. thank you boeing for coming in. appreciate it. >> thanks for having us. >> that last thing i mentioned, let me start with that. kate, i'll start with you, do you think that the young vote is going to turn out in force this year? they did four years ago. >> i think there's no question that four years ago the youth vote turned out in droves. a lot of that was because we had a dynamic candidate obama making promises that really resonated with the
votes in this state. the current unemployment rate, 5.9%. 2008, president obama won the state by over six percentage points, the first time a democrat won the state of virginia since 1964. joining us from the university of virginia is the director of their politics center. larry, what are the issues being campaigned on in virginia? guest: the same issues as. every as the economy is for most, i suppose. if there's any special flavor into virginia, we cover all 50 states at the center for politics at the university of virginia, if there's any special flavor here, virginia depends on defense to a greater degree in than any other state except for alaska. we are second in per-capita defense expenditures. there's a special flavor on federal spending, because governmental employment is so important, not just in northern virginia, which borders on d.c., but also in hampton roads, the hampton roads area off virginia beach and the surrounding localities. host: what are the demographics of the state of virginia? guest: as with most larger population states, there are many states in one. you have
her vote for president obama. gary. >> and will, we're trying to get the clouds out of here. no doubt they're severed and it looks like one more day before we can see the descent sunshine coming around for the weekend. we'll have a complete look at the forecast as well as more news from the fox news -- fox 5 news at 5 continues. stay with us.  anncr: it's said that character is what we do... when we think no one is looking. mitt romney: believe that they are victims. anncr: mitt romney thought no one was looking when... he attacked forty-seven percent of americans. his companies shipped jobs overseas. his an cuts millionaires' taxes, but raises yours. he'll voucherize medicare... and make catastrophic cuts to education. so remember what romney said... and what his plan would do. president obama: i'm barack obama and... i approve this message. . >>> two more members of a violent group police say were attacking people on d.c. streets have been arrested. a total of five young men have been connected to nine robberies and meeting -- beatings and there could be more. one
that four years ago early voting helped obama win the white house. the same thing is being said this year, that a lot of voters will come early and vote before election day. this is our new poll out in ohio. among those voting early, you can see the president has a big advantage there, 58% to 39%. mitt romney has the advantage. the romney campaign says they're doing much better than john mccain's campaign. >> just getting back to florida real quickly, you mentioned mitt romney's events there, one exactly where you are at the moment. but what is he going to be focusing on specifically in florida? who is he targeting? >> reporter: he's going to be targeting early voters for sure, but also he's going to be targeting those remaining undecided voters. also one of the other missions today is to kind of excite the base, the republicans and conservatives here in florida and get them out to the polls. he's going to be joined in all three stops by senator marco rubio, the freshman senator here, a very popular republican. he's also going to talk about the economy. that's really his wheelhouse. yeste
romney wins the popular vote, barack obama wins the electoral vote and the presidency, like we had in 2000, and it raises questions going into governing. so i think what you see is the next day, mitch mcconnell and john boehner the republican leaders in the congress, stand up and say we'll speak for the majority of the country and therefore continue to oppose the president's agenda. >> what about you, amie? any words from inside the white house? are they mulling this prospect of the possible electoral vote split and how it might affect governing? >> i don't think they care so much about the national poll. they haven't really even strategists tell me they haven't even really been focused on that. they're focused on the swing states. so i think that when the president does come back, if he does come back, then he will have to say, you know, this is all in the past, let's all try to work together. but i think they're taking the swing state polling very seriously, and not so much on the other. >> yeah. steve, quickly, hurricane sandy. we know it's canceled events in virginia and new ha
of pushing supporters to vote. much the same as four years ago. >> i think it's more important to get obama out. i do. i absolutely think it's more important to get obama out. >> reporter: clearly mitt romney and barack obama have some complicated relationships with their supporters. but no doubt neither candidate will care as long as the supporters make it to the polls. gary tuchman, cnn, cleveland. >> let's delve into the raw politics with gop strategist mary matalin and democratic strategist, james carville. good evening to you both. james, cornell belcher, the obama 2012 pollster, was on the program last night and he was saying that in internal polls, they're not seeing this romney momentum that the media has talked about so much since the first debate. they think momentum that obama is doing pretty well. do you buy that, that there's not the narrative of romney momentum is not accurate? >> i think romney did do better, objectively he improved his position after the first debate. i don't think he improved it any in the last ten days or so, but he improved his position then. i don't see
obama ad is basically trying to frighten democrats into making sure they vote. reminding them of the disputed 2000 election. >> 537. the number of votes that changed the course of american history. >> florida is too close to call. >> the difference between what was and what could have been. >> reporter: a new poll shows that 59% of obama voters and 58% of romney voters are very enthusiastic. but the abc news/"washington post" poll indicates obama's enthusiasm numbers were higher four years ago at 68%. while romney's numbers are considerably better than john mccain's, which were at 38% four years ago. the cheering was deafening at this large obama rally on cleveland's lakefront but many obama supporters say it feels different than four years ago. >> it's seriously just a different kind of excitement. it's more sort of tempered in like reality that this is a campaign, not a crusade. >> thank you. >> reporter: on the gop side, anti-obama sentiment remains a key component of pushing supporters to vote. much the same as four years ago. >> i think it's more important to get obama ou
